The renowned horn player Martin Owen is joined by the violinist Francesca Dego and pianist Alessandro Taverna in this varied and compelling programme. Mozart’s Horn Quintet, K407, is one of the earliest examples of the horn in chamber music – although this partnership was embraced by Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, and Schumann among many others. The Quintet is unusually scored for horn, violin, two violas, and cello, but the majority of the melodic interplay in the work occurs between the horn and the violin, so replacing the lower strings with piano works very well. Brahms’s Horn Trio was the first major work for this instrumentation, and remains one of the finest in the repertoire. The horn is often seen as symbolic of the forest – an important entity in German culture – and Brahms commented that his inspiration for the piece came to him whilst out walking though woodland. Ligeti’s Hommage à Brahms was very much inspired by Brahms’s Trio, although influences of Bartók and Hungarian folk music also play their part. In the final piece, Schumann’s ‘Duet’ from Phantasiestücke, the horn simply replaces the original cello part in this ultra-romantic miniature.
